the president for not weighing in saying the obama administration's hipocracy and lack of respect has reached an all-time high. i call on president obama to stand up for americas' values and beliefs and denounce "piss christ" that has denounced christians at home and abroad. why hasn't president obama stopped "piss christ" from being displayed and how quickly can we impeach him? >> tomorrow? hasn't it already happened? first off, the whole "piss christ" thing is offensive, and i am disgusted there were tax dollars spent on it. however, the answer is not to have obama come out and denounce it. he shouldn't have denounced the youtube video that nobody saw. the answer to fighting the goats herding barbarians who are storming our embassy abroad is not to start acting like them. we have freedom of speech. we are not going to sensor people. we shouldn't pay for them, end of story. i don't think the answer is to start becoming art and film critics and start setting up, well, i denounce this, i denounce that. just shut up and don't talk about any of. it it is not your job. >> of course not. what i do
